Frequently Asked Questions
What kind of stories is the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation looking for?
With topics ranging from emotional health to treatments, the blog is a platform to share your unique story. If you’re interested in writing a blog but not sure where to start, we are happy to set up a brainstorm with you.
How long are most blog posts?
Stories on our blog can be told using words, images, or video and we encourage you to use whatever medium feels right for you. More comfortable in front of a camera? Capture interesting, high quality images to share with us. Our best blog posts follow these guidelines:
- Article length: 600 - 1,000 words
- Image: horizontal, wide-shot photos (1920x800, or highest resolution available)
- Audio or video length: 3 minutes or less
Who can write for the blog?
We invite adults and teens with CF, parents, siblings, spouses, friends, clinicians, researchers, and anyone with a connection to the CF community to share their stories.
Does the Foundation pay for submissions?
No. However, our contributors always receive full attribution for their work and, once submissions are published, they are encouraged to share it widely with their social and professional networks.
Does the Foundation accept previously published material?
We will consider previously published material. If you would like to share a blog post, video, or other medium that has already been published, please fill out the blog form with a link to your content and we will get back to you.
Will the Foundation edit my blog?
The Foundation’s editorial team may suggest edits for style, accuracy, grammar, clarity or length. However, we believe that the blog is a place for the community to share their ideas and opinions, so we typically refrain from making substantive content changes.
How often can I submit stories to the Foundation?
We are always looking for great stories, so reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know if there are any topics you’d like to see on the blog or if you’d like to write a blog post. Additionally, feel free to pass on the blog form to anyone you’d think would be interested in sharing their story.
How soon before I hear about my content or form submission? We read all form and content submissions and our goal is to respond to you within one week.
